A place to share my two loves: beauty and food.

Weekly Favourites # 25

This has been a quiet week where I have focussed on work and going to the gym  - exciting times! I have actually been very proud of myself as I joined Virgin Active at the beginning of the month and so far there have only been two days that I have not gone. I have even been getting up early to go before work, which is something I never thought would happen! I think I have been doing so well as so many of my friends are members of the gym therefore it has become a social event. Although the gym is a big expense I do not see my friends as often during the week for dinners as I am seeing them almost every day at the gym. 

On Friday the sun was shining so after a very relaxing swim I met my boyfriend and we went to one of our favourite pizza place: Franco Manca.  We had two pizzas, desserts and a bottle of wine and the bill came to £33.00, which I think is amazing value for money, especially in London. Although I would add - make sure you check your pizza has tomato base as often they won't! Anyway, I have raved about this so many times so I won't write another ode. Instead, I will just gently remind you that if you haven't you must go and try one of their stone oven baked sough dough pizzas.

On Saturday I went to the gym, I know I am now just showing off, and came home to spend Father's Day with the whole family. I have a big family of around 25 - 35 people depending on who can make events so BBQs are always extremely amusing and I always try and return home for them. On Sunday the grandparents came round for another smaller BBQ. It was nice to spend quality time with the family after such a hectic week.

Favourite post: I think everyone will agree with this one! Lisa Eldridge and Alex Chung combine for a tutorial and if you had a girl crush on Alexa before then this video takes it to a whole other level! Watch the video here.

I also want to have a shout out for Anna and her amazing Summer Capsule Wardrobe video. She looks like such a fun person and her fashion choices always get me reaching for my purse! 

Favourite product: I think this has to be the Topshop Skin Glow as I am actually obsessed. I cannot stop recommending it and using it at every opportunity. I promise you it is the perfect summer product! 

Hope you have all had a good week too!
